Anger Management!

Alex has started do this thing when he is mad.

He throws down whatever he is holding and spits out his pacifier if he has it in his mouth, his face loses all expression, his body goes limp and he closes his eyes. This means I am mad at you...don't talk to me. He does this for about 15-20 seconds and then he is fine, picks up his stuff and moves on.

We were in the car, on our way to Salt Lake this weekend when Steve announced that he had forgotten his iPhone and we had to go back home. I decided to be funny and do what Alex does and shut my eyes and went limp. And it came to me.

He is counting to 10!

My little man is using anger management techniques!

Now...if he can just teach Mallory!


  1. A brilliant child! Will he come and teach mine?

    Visiting from allmediocre - I'm having fun working through the blogroll!

  2. Oh my gosh! Too funny! Such a funny mental picture.

    I, too, am working my way through the blogroll on allmediocre.

  3. I love the tactic! Be sure to reinforce it with the hopes that he takes it with him through life. What a wonderful skill that will be! :)


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
